“Molly Wizenberg is a food writer with a monthly column in Bon Appetit and the popular blog Orangette, and A Homemade Life -- a biography told in recipes -- is drawn from her blog. Told in an extremely personalble and personal voice -- and including everything from her father's french toast and a recipe for Tarte Tatin in which the memory of a young heartbreak in Paris is a silent but important ingredient -- A Homemade Life reads very much like a chat at the table over coffee with your best friend.”
